Any recommended further reading for ISO/IEC 17025?

Hello All,
I'm wondering if anyone can recommend any books or publications to further my understanding of ISO/IEC 17025? I'm looking for something that's easy to digest ("ISO 17025 for Dummies"-have they written it yet?). Thanks for any replies.

Navin R,

If you know how to calculate Measurement Uncertainty, and you know how to participate in Laboratory Comparisons, then all you need to know is that your laboratory must have a documented quality management system that complies with the old 1994 version of ISO-9001. I think that covers most of it!

No disrespect intended Douglas, but if I knew all about those things you mentioned, I wouldn't be asking for some type of reference book. Any books that you could recommend on Measurment Uncertainty, Interlaboratory Comparions and ISO 9000:1994? Again, not just looking for a book on the subject, I'm looking for a recommendation of a good book.

Take a look at the A2LA websight. There is quite a bit of reference material there.

If you figure it all out, you write a book to help us out :D

Also, for proficiency testing, get a copy of ISO Guide 43-1 and
43-2. These will help you understand how to develope your own testing if needed.

I'll also include this little tidbit on PT.

Ken K-thanks a bunch. They had alot of good information for me.

Douglas E. Purdy-Yes, you are correct. You've cut right to the crux of the matter. I may be the least knowledgable person on 17025 matters to visit this forum in a long, long time-this I freely admit. But please, cut me a little slack, they've kept me locked away, like a mushroom, in this CMM room for 14 years now. At least I've progressed from when I thought the uncertainty budget had dollar signs in it.
